Putin Purges Kremlin Liberals While NATO Candidates Suffer Political Defeats in Eastern Europe

In the seventh edition of the Russian Newspapers Monitor, Professor Filip Kovacevic discusses the front page articles from five Russian newspapers: Rossiyskaya Gazeta, Izvestia, Nezavisimaya Gazeta, Pravda, and Argumenty i Facty. He discusses the implications of the recent phone conversation between Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump and chronicles the current stage of the Russian military intervention in Syria, NATO military exercise in Lithuania, and the victories of the pro-Russian presidential candidates in Moldova and Bulgaria. Kovacevic also reports that the Russian semi-tabloid press remains skeptical about Trump's ability to improve relations between the U.S. and Russia.
